I said a little while ago that we were getting the internet this Sunday. But, it doesn't look like we are at all, because it turns out J wasn't entirely sure about what they told him. He told me just a few days ago that he never said they would be coming on Sunday, just that that was his best guess at what the letter said. And in other news, Train actually successfully chewed through the mouse cable while J was using it. He'd always told me he didn't believe it to be a serious problem.

Anyway, now my throat is clearing up, I'm back in the mood for karaoke. I wonder if they've added Treasure (Princess Princess D ending theme) to the list yet? I also really want to look round the Dali exhibition in Ueno too.

I saw this in raburesu a little while ago. You can now send a message to anyone who write for REX, WARD or Zero-Sum! I tried to write to Oomine Shouko-sensei, but I wonder if she will be able to understand me?

I got a flyer in the post for the next Bleach Live in January. It's strange, but they describe it as a live rather than a musical. I presume that means that the final half hour is now the main attraction? I'm not sure how I'd feel about that, if that's the case. While that's always been the highlight for me, it doesn't have much meaning without the first half.

Tickets go on sale very soon and it's in a different theatre from usual (not the Nihon Seinenkan). It's actually somewhere in Shibuya and not a place I know. There also seems to be two different ticket prices, which I think might be new. Might not be remembering correctly though.

From Moonphase...
  • Designs for Gonzo's Romeo and Juliet are now up at Excite Blog. The cast is not yet announced. Considering Gankutsuou, I wonder how much they will change...? How about the ending...? (I can't believe I just typed that.)

    Finally, a Death Note comic (no spoilers).

    On Wednesday, I went to Nikkou with kuroe. I took a lot of pictures, but only with my camera phone, so I can't post them yet. We wandered around the main town area and tried to find some trees with red or golden leaves. Unfortunately, there weren't many and autumn doesn't really seem to have hit Nikkou yet. I think Takaosan is better, really, considering the time and money each place takes. Perhaps we'll return and go to to Nikkou Edo Mura (Edo Wonderland Nikkou) though. The air is very clean though and the people very friendly. We stopped at a coffee shop and the lady gave us a handful of cranes as we were leaving. Nikkou is famous for yuba, a kind of high quality toufu, but I didn't try it. But there are a ton of signs for it and everywhere seems to sell some type of it from purin to man to soba. I kind of wish I had...

    Speaking of photos, it's almost my one year anniversary of arriving in Japan! I'll try to make some kind of big anniversary photo post.

    What is it with female characters who have a pink theme? Juliet looks like she's drenched in it.

    I think it looks amazing. But I already know R&J off by heart, so I don't know that I want to watch an outright tragedy unfold over thirteen or however many episodes.

    It looks beautiful and Gonzo always does beautiful animation. But Juliet in pastel pink and Romeo in blue makes me chuckle and think of baby colours^_^

    I think I'm just sick of girls with pink hair in anime. It's so cliche.

    But does it say something different if the girl in question is a heroine from a classic and it's a reinterpretation? That's not a rhetorical question, just thinking out loud.

    Since we're thinking out loud... does it change anything if the gender of the character is the same?

    I'm not trying to be difficult. Just musing^_^
    Hi-chan (火ちゃん): Bleach - Hitsu x Gin valentinehinoai on 11th November 2006 21:00 (UTC)
    Ahaha, I love your comic ♥

    I'm going to be trying out the internet reservation system for the tickets for Bleach myu today. I hope that I can get some!! (I'm doing it that way because I suck and don't have any money until the 15th to pay for them, so I can't get tickets in the machines.. ;_;) Good luck!! I'm trying for the last show.

    The reservation slip this time says that for the presales you can only get the more expensive tickets. I think, after looking at the theater's homepage, that those are the 1st floor tickets and the cheaper ones are on the top floor. I think I've been there before, but I can't for the life of me think what I saw there.... but I know the location, it's next to the place that played Switch wo Osu Toki..........

    Anyways... I'm really looking forward to the live!! We've been guessing that it's kinda like a Dream Live for Burimyu. I always liked those parts a lot, so it's going to really be a lot of fun!! ^^

    And anytime that you want to go to karaoke, look me up!! =^__^= I'm always up for it!

    I didn't try at all because I was working early today. I think, surely, that the more expensive tickets would be near the front or on the first floor. But I thought that the two-tier ticketing system was new. In any case, I'm glad to have a guaranteed first floor seat. I was so jealous when all those shinigami emerged on the first floor last myu and I was (for the first time!) on the second floor.

    I LOVED last myu far more than I did the first. Although, now I think about it, wasn't the last myu kind of cliffhanger-y?

    Haha, maybe on a Saturday night? I can easily be in Ikebukuro by seven in my work clothes or 7.30 if I get changed.
